    Passo fits your requirements
    Vitz 2012 is expensive

    buy passo 2012 or vitz 2010
    any of these two which you find in good condition specially with original mileage.
    corolla 2012 mean you will buy xli in good condition.
    Plus the car is for your father then automatic is good.
    FYI, japanese 660cc is better and has more power than 1000cc local cultus or anyone.
    CC doesn't matter in justifying engine power. There are many other factors involved.

    If you already know that the car will take some beating, go for locally assembled corolla.It has less features, but PKDMs can be maintained much easily as compared to any JDM.

    I would suggest you to go for Passo 2012/2013.
    Keep in mind that JPY is strong these days so in this budget you can get a basic version Passo (fresh import).

    And no, it isn't underpowered. Both the cars have CVT transmission. Vitz has the same engine with a chubby body and Vitz performs good too. But in this budget you can't get a 2012 Vitz and it will be difficult to find a clean 2010 one with genuine mileage.

    P.S I just read that you dad doesn't maintain the car well, so Corolla is the right option for you as it can live through this. Plus it's maintenance is cheap as compared to JDMs.

    Engine check light maybe because of some sensor issue or some disturbance with the wires.
    Weak engine doesn't mean you will face knocking issue.
    Knocking issue is normal with japanese cars as fuel here is low in octane number. It can be resolved by mixing hi octane or using only hi octane to increase the octane number.
    Catalytic convertor if there might cause any problems in rare cases.
    Knocking doesn't mean the engine is weak. Engine weakness depends on many factors.
